Sugar in your coffee of sugar with your coffee? #1 (permalink) Mon Jan 24, 2005 11:20 am   Sugar in your coffee of sugar with your coffee?
 

A.) Do you want any sugar in your coffee.
B.) Do you want any sugar with your coffee.

Are the two sentences correct? When should I use A? B?

Grammatically both sentences are correct. Sugar in your coffee might be more appropriate because it implies that you put the sugar into your coffee cup whereas sugar with your coffee might mean that you simply eat sugar when having a cup of coffee, which, of course is rather unusual.
